God Turning Setbacks into Stepping Stones
Updated: Sep 25, 2021
It's Your Turnaround Season
Scripture: Psalm 118:22 The stone which the builders refused (rejected) is become the head stone of the corner.
That scripture is talking about Jesus. He is the Head Cornerstone, holding everything up, together and in place. He was despised, rejected, betrayed, lied on, beaten, misunderstood, and crucified.
The adversary wanted the attacks against Jesus to discourage Him to the point of making Him give up in defeat. But Jesus trusted the Father. Jesus knew that there was a greater purpose for His problems, pain and persecution.
When Jesus was crucified, the adversary and all of Jesus' enemies thought they had defeated Him. They thought they had won. But it was only a temporary setback.
And that temporary setback ended up being used as a springboard to thrust Him forward, into His Greater Purpose. It was the stepping stone to lead Him to Destiny and Fulfilment.
So, whatever setbacks you may have faced in the past, currently facing or may face in the future, remember, "It's not over, not failure, not defeat". Jesus did not stay dead. He came back to life. And "Abundant Life" is Now available to you through Jesus.
So, prepare for Resurrection, New Beginning, New Life, New Start.
Did you know that as you release yourself and all of your stuff to the care and trust of our Great Savior Jesus, that He is going to continue working in and working on you; perfecting those things that concern you.
So, you have had some setbacks. Don't give up. Get up. Get yourself back up and get ready, cause Jesus is a Master Archer who knows how to take setbacks and use them as arrows to release you forward. Let Him place you back on track, back in the bow, back in the flow and release you as a new flaming, focused arrow to go farther than you have ever gone before.
